This song goes well with the smell of apples and cinnamon

My wife baked an apple crumble for us this cold and rainy afternoon. As the smell of apples and cinnamon filled it apartment, this song, Mountain Air by Cody Francis, was playing on Spotify:

As song and smell pairings go, this is a good one!

Update: Here’s what that smell was all about:

Danny Elfman’s Batman theme in the Justice League soundtrack

I thought I’d listen to Danny Elfman’s Justice League soundtrack again this morning, and noticed a familiar theme while listening to the track “The Final Battle” at about 1:12:

It’s familiar because Elfman probably drew on his theme from the Michael Keaton Batman movie themes. Listen to this track from Batman, titled “Attack of the Batwing“:

It comes out pretty clearly in “Batman Theme Reprise“, too:

I’m not as much a fan of Danny Elfman lately, but I love hearing these throwbacks to this soundtrack that I really enjoyed back in the day.

Sweet sounds of This Bitter Earth

Vinyl record being played

I feel like I’m on a bit of a Max Richter journey of discovery the last couple days. My conversation with a couple other music fans prompted me to listen to Richter’s “The Blue Notebooks” album, and it’s terrific.

I especially enjoy the sweet sound of “This Bitter Earth / On The Nature Of Daylight“:

If this trailer music is in the Aquaman soundtrack, it will be awesome

If the music in this Aquaman trailer is in Rupert Gregson-Williams’ upcoming soundtrack, it’s going to be awesome!

Music while we waited for our train

One of the things I like about Israeli train stations is that most of them have pianos that commuters can play while waiting for their trains. We had a short wait for our train home after our visit to the Steinhardt Museum of Natural History today, and we were treated to a mini-performance.

By the time this creative commuter finished playing, he’d attracted a small audience of fellow travelers who sat around him to listen to him play.

Beautiful music from Planet Earth 2

I’ve been listening to a Hans Zimmer radio station on Spotify, and this gem from the Planet Earth 2 soundtrack popped up, wow:

Love The Strings In Tall Heights’ “Horse To Water”

I really enjoy Tall Heights‘ “Horse to Water”. In particular, I love the strings you hear in the chorus. The music video is a little odd, but the music is terrific:

I first heard the track on Spotify so here it is:

A Great Spotify Playlist to Relax With

I’m a recent convert to Spotify and I’m really enjoying it. I discovered this playlist that has some great, new (to me) music that’s perfect to relax with:

One of my new favourites from this playlist is this one from Little May:
